The Ender Dragon is Getting a Tuneup


Slaying the Ender Dragon can be said to be one of the only “goals” in the goal-free game that is Minecraft, and it’s completely optional. Even if it’s a goal you’ve completed, you might want to try it again after update 1.9 comes out soon for PC.

Mojang Developer Nathan Adams, probably better known to you as Dinnerbone, has been working on an update to the Ender Dragon encounter and chronicling his progress on Twitter.

“I am redoing the mechanics to be similar to how it is on Console Edition, but I’m taking it a step further. I have Plans™,” Adams tweeted. The Ender Dragon is a bit more complex in its movelist on console.

He also said if you’ve already killed the Ender Dragon on your world, you’ll be able to kill it in its new form without resetting The End. Neat.

Adams also posted a bug gif showing the new Ender Dragon freaking out, which you can see here at this link.

If The Ender Dragon isn’t that exciting to you, Adams says it’s not the only thing he’s working on for 1.9, but he’s saving that for later.
